The fees for citizenship through entry on the Foreign Births Register are set out in Statutory Instrument number 47/2013 - Foreign Births Regulations 2013, which provides for fees as follows:

Under 18 Registration: €125 + €20.00 for the certificate

Over 18 Registration: €250 + €20.00 for the certificate

These fees are uniform irrespective of where a person applies from. A non-refundable postage and handling fee of €8 is also charged.

Since November 2016, it has been possible to make online payments when applying for Foreign Birth Registration. However, at a number of missions (Embassy Abuja, Embassy Addis Ababa, Embassy Dar Es Salaam, Embassy Freetown, Embassy Nairobi, Embassy Maputo, Embassy Malawi, and Honorary Consulate Auckland), payments must be made directly.
